    No offense to everyone trying to run a business on here but I was raised to do for yourself if you can. I have a good length (about 250 feet) gravel driveway that I'm looking to clear myself. I recently purchased a 2008 Chevy Silverado 1500 and am looking to hook up a Fisher HT. Got a couple local dealers I can go to charging about the same. With only a couple more months of serious winter weather ahead, I cant say Im in a huge hurry to drop $4k+. Whens the best time to get equipment?? Now, in 2 months, after the Fourth of July?? If I can save $500 on the plow and only spend prob another $100 on addl plowing seems like a good idea to me. Thanks for any input!!!
